Apparently we weren't the only people who read Refinery29's post about how the topknot is the hot new hairdo. "Racked commentors are so conservative. You just want to see pretty girls in dumb dresses (and the male equivalent). I have seen three guys with this hairstyle in the last week. It's a trend. Among people who set the trends. You guys just like to wait until Macys has it, and then you'll wear it." [Racked Comments, Refinery29]
